Forum: etree Subject: Re: Derivations for 24 Bit FLACs

A few years ago there was a bug in the way lossy derivatives were made from a 24-bit source, so derivatives were disabled by default. That's been fixed for at least a year or two as far as I can recall.

For what it's worth, I always upload separate copies of 16- and 24-bit but I think a lot of tapers are moving away from that. It would be nice to have 16-bit FLACs derived from 24-bit and displayed on the same page, or the ability to upload 16- and 24-bit to the same item and have one set of lossy derivatives appear alongside them. i.e.

I record at 24/48, and am in the club of having given up on 16-bit. There is no reason to make these files anymore. Who still uses CD's? They're an awful waste of plastic, and the 16/44.1 format is 31 years old! Can you imagine someone in 1980 being all excited about a recording technology from 1949? Things are changing much faster than that now...

I think that would be a great development.
